Rainy Day Visitors

Yesterday was a raw, rainy day. Yet, I still found opportunities to take pictures from the comfort of home.


Rain didn’t keep the chickadees away. The kitchen window is the perfect spot for bird watching.


This blue jay always visits alone. Aren’t his colors gorgeous?


While snuggled up on the sofa watching a movie, I saw a trio of deer looking in the window at me.


Of course I had to pause the movie to snap more pictures before the dog scared them off.


This is another benefit to thinning out the woods – it’s much easier to see the wildlife wandering through. Of course I might not be so thrilled in the spring when I’m back in garden mode.

    Nice job dropping the tree. It needed to be done. You’ll be a lot safer and have more wood for your boiler.

    That doe appeared to have a lot of meat on it. If doe are in season and you had a heavy rifle you could have had
    meat for the winter.

      Dad, although it’s hunting season, there will be no deer hunting by this family! I just don’t have it in me.

      Some of the wood went to the boiler, but a good bit of the trunk is thick and straight so we’re saving those lengths for the saw mill.
